Today’s marathon training called for a tempo run. Basically, a tempo run is a run where you do a few miles at a faster pace than usual.
This run was supposed to be: 2 mile warm up; 3 miles at 8:30 pace; 1 mile cool down. I don’t have my Garmin with me, but from memory…
I ended up doing something like:
Mile 1: Warm up
Mile 2: 8:35
Mile 3: 8:29
Mile 4: 8:31
Mile 5: 8:14
.40 mile: Cool Down (I ran out of time!)
I also had to make breakfast speedy since I have such a long commute! I have oatmeal in a jar. But, I have to admit to a major blog land no-no, I used instant oatmeal packets – one maple brown sugar and one regular. Mixing them makes the best flavor or it’s too sweet.
I am obsessed with pineapple cottage cheese right now. Ob.Sessed.
Lunch was eaten while working since today was a busy and short day. I made a veggie burger wrap with POP chips on the side. Nothing amazing, but I love this meal. Easy, filling and delicious, just like I like it.
